Sixty82 launches TPM29S – a top quality reinvention of the industry’s most used box truss

Jan 18, 2023

Sixty82 is proud to present the all-new TPM29S, a new 29cm box truss that is up to 25% stronger, yet fully compatible with, the M29 series box truss.

By introducing TPM29S, the first in Sixty82’s new TPM Truss Series, Sixty82 has re-invented the industry’s most popular truss type, the M29S box truss, to deliver a new product with a wealth of added benefits to the end user.

TPM29S is up to 25% stronger than similar box trusses enabling it to withstand the most demanding conditions. An improved design of the diagonal braces helps to increase the strength and stability of the truss system, while the new optimised shape and dimensions provide better support to withstand higher forces.

Extruded end frames enable TPM truss to withstand more load without deforming. The extrusion process ensures a precise and uniform shape that is 100% square with a perfect fit, reducing the risk of failure due to poor connections. The extruded end frame also makes TPM29S bounce- and smash-proof.

The removal of the end diagonal support in the new design makes for easy storage and allows easy placement of uplighters within the truss without interfering with the light output. A new truss spigot made of stronger alloy adds a further key improvement to the strength of the TPM Series.

A major feature of the TPM29S is that it is fully compatible/interchangeable with the current M29 Series and can be seamlessly integrated into any M29 Series setup. In cases where both truss types are used, customers can simply use the loading tables of the M29 truss for safe and reliable operation.

Sixty82 is very proud to state that the whole process of design of the TPM Series jigs, robot track and integration of the system was entirely carried out in-house by the Sixty82 team.

“We have taken the holistic approach to improving our whole production process, not only implementing advanced robotics technology, but also adapting the design of the truss to fit the robotising production process as perfectly as possible,” says Sixty82’s Fokko Smeding. “This unique approach has allowed us to achieve maximum output with the shortest lead times of a top-quality product.”

TPM Series truss is the perfect solution for anyone looking to expand their M29 series and take advantage of the latest innovations in truss technology. TPM29S is the first in the series to be released. Contact Sixty82 to find out more.
